SPARLING, W/C Clarence Coates (C1957)
Mention in Despatches - No.61 Base (AFRO gives unit only as "Overseas"
Award effective 8 June 1944 as per London Gazette of that date and AFRO 1729/44 dated 11 August 1944. Home in Flin Flon, Manitoba; enlisted in Winnipeg, 23 April 1940. No citation in AFRO. DHist file 181.009.D.2993 (RG.24 Vol.20634) has recommendation for an OBE sent to No.6 Group HQ, 18 January 1944.

As a result of long service and experience in the Army and the Air Force, and augmented by his legal experience as one of His Majesty's King's Counsel, this officer has been outstanding in Oranizational and Legal matters pertaining to the service. His early work connected with the organization of Initial Training Schools under the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan, and later in organization of the Air Cadets of Canada, have had marked effect. In England, organization of the first RCAF Base Headquarters was his responsibility and was completed in a most commendable manner. Under his guidance this important Headquarters is now functioning smoothly.
In addition to this organizational effort which has taken long and strenuous hours under sometimes very trying circumstances, this officer has given much of his spare time to personnel in an endeavour to solve and straighten out their personal and worrying problems, legal and domestic. He has, in addition, rendered legal assistance, unstintingly, in Court Martial work. During his service as a whole he has given to his country a great deal more than ordinary labour and effort. His service has been cheerful, unselfish and without restraint.

For zeal and faithfulness in the performance of ordinary duty, and for voluntary and unselfish performance of many extraordinary duties for the benefit of the service and personnel, and for his exceptional tenacity and fine record of achievement, Wing Commander Sparling is strongly recommended for the award of the Order of the British Empire.
